I have SUPER good news for those of you who have always wanted to attend a Mormon Stories / Faith Crisis Retreat...I have a super cool opportunity.

A generous donor has stepped forward to underwrite the event, and a few other generous folks have offered their St. George homes to us...so here's the scoop!

1) We are able to make the 12/6-12/8 St. George retreat available to ANYONE who wants to attend. If you cannot afford the registration fee, you are free to pay what you can afford, and the generous donor will cover the rest.

2) We will be driving a retreat karaoke party van down from Salt Lake City on the morning of 12/6, returning the evening of 12/8....so if anyone wants to drive with us...have a blast...and save on transportation, we'd love to have you!

3) Finally, we have several guest rooms available for folks to stay in if you need a place to stay in St. George. If you can pay something for them, great. If you are not able to afford them, that's ok too!

In summary, PLEASE don't let finances stop you from attending our Mormon Stories / faith crisis retreat if you are able to come. We will focus on all the important issues including:

1) Navigating a religious faith crisis.
2) Communicating with believing family and friends.
3) Navigating a mixed faith marriage.
4) Improving your mental health during a faith transition.
5) Improving your sexuality during and after a faith transition.
6) Parenting after a faith crisis.

And whatever else you want/need help on.

Please spread the word, and we hope to see many of you you soon!

While in Seattle, Washington this past week—we were excited to finally put a face to the voice that so many in the post- and progressive-Mormon world have come to know—by interviewing the host of the Radio Free Mormon podcast of the family of Mormon Discussions podcasts. While we still do not disclose his name, we are confident that after this 7-hour journey with "RFM," you will come away with an accurate depiction of the man behind some of the most informative and entertaining podcasts in the Mormon community.

Broadcasting behind Enemy lines, Radio Free Mormon tackles the difficult subjects in Mormonism like no one else.  Dissecting things like a surgeon, RFM gets to the crux of the issue, exposing all the connections and subtleties that lie below the surface.   His unique sense of humor, his knowledge of Mormonism, his displaying of the data.  If you haven’t yet listened, you likely could use some Radio Free Mormon in your life.

Laci Green is an internationally recognized YouTuber (1.4M subscribers), author, and podcaster.

In 2018, Laci published her first book, Sex Plus: Learning, Loving and Enjoying Your Body.

In this interview, Laci also discusses the challenges of being a Youtuber, and what factors left her to leave her successful Youtube channel behind (with 1.4M subscribers).
